Baby Bandito on Netflix: is a season 2 possible for the hit series?

Based on a mind-blowing true story, the Baby Bandito series is a new success for Netflix. What to give him a season 2?

A recent Hispanic success on Netflix, Baby Bandito has made a nice place for itself in the top views of the platform. This Chilean series, which is in the same vein as La Casa de Papel, has won over subscribers for its supercharged action, its breathtaking twists and turns and its colorful characters.

An incredible true story

But this series produced by Pablo Larraín (Neruda, Jackie, Spencer, The Count) and created by Valeria Hofmann, Diego Muñoz (Neruda, The Count) and Juan Andrés Rivera is above all inspired by an incredible true story!

That of Kevin Olguín Sepulveda, a small bandit at the head of a gang who carried out the heist of the century in Chile: 15 million dollars stolen from Santiago airport in 2014.

For the purposes of fiction, the writers changed the name of the main character who became Kevin Tapia, played by Nicolás Contreras, and obviously fictionalized his life and his crimes for 8 episodes.

Thus, colorful characters gravitate around Kevin, such as his girlfriend Genesis (Francisca Armstrong), his best friend Panda (Lukas Vergara), the criminal Mistica (Carmen Zabala) and the bandit Pantera (Pablo Macaya), former sidekick of his father, but also a fictional group of criminals called The Butchers.

Is a season 2 of Baby Bandito possible?

The first season of Baby Bandito can work very well as such and make this Chilean fiction a mini-series, which does not necessarily call for a sequel. Especially since the series is based on a true story, it would then be necessary to completely invent new events and twists to go beyond the story of Kevin Olguín Sepulveda, even if the series is very fictionalized.


For the moment, Netflix has not announced a renewal of Baby Bandito, even if it is a new success for the platform with already more than 10 million hours viewed for its first week according to the platform’s figures. This popularity could make the American giant want to offer a second season to the Chilean series.

Especially since the first season ends on a cliffhanger. Certainly, the members of the gang are arrested by the authorities or killed, but Kevin managed to flee the police and the other criminals, leaving Genesis and his child behind alone.

The ending suggests that Kevin is still on the run and has fled to another country to lead a new life. In reality, Kevin Olguín Sepulveda has been arrested several times, escaped numerous times and is currently incarcerated.

The writers could therefore once again draw on the life of the real criminal to write a season 2 of Baby Bandito. We will have to wait for an official decision from Netflix to be sure.

The Baby Bandito series is available on Netflix.
